The extraordinary Paco Peña embodies both authenticity and innovation in flamenco. As guitarist, composer, dramatist, producer and artistic mentor he has transformed perceptions of this archetypal Spanish art form. Since 1970, Paco Peña has performed regularly with his own world famous, hand-picked company of dancers, guitarists and singers in a succession of groundbreaking shows which bring to the stage a true rendition of what the art of flamenco represents: a spontaneous collaboration between artists of different disciplines which creates a unique and unrepeatable experience every time.

Having performed at prestigious theatres worldwide, including the Royal Albert Hall, Sadler’s Wells Theatre and New York’s Carnegie Hall, the ten-piece Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company now visit Wales for a five-date tour of selected theatres.

The company’s performance A Compás! transmits to its audience the compelling nature of a range of flamenco rhythms, from the almost tribal, trance-inducing quality of the “alboreá” to the razor-sharp complexity of the “bulería”. It’s an unstoppable, universal pulse to unite artists and audience in the rhythm of an amazing experience, in the company of an incredible man.  

    

"Mr Peña is a virtuoso, capable of dazzling an audience beyond the frets of mortal man. He combines rapid-fire flourishes with a colourist's sense of shading; this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument." The New York Times
